Audacious is my bet. Plays everything (even exotic formats like SPC), is small, looks cool.

Audacious has been out for quite some time though not always by that name. It was initially known as beep media player(which was just a rewrite of xmms to gtk+2). When most of the developers of BMP decided to start fresh on a new version (bmpx), some decided to continue developing the existing code and renamed the project Audacious. You can also use the most excellent projectM visualization pulgin with it. 8)

Well I used to use bmp a year ago or so and I loved it, but I didn't know that it became audacious. Anyhow, it feels much faster and lighter now :)

Likewise. It's really very spiffy. (Be sure to try out the 0.9.5 stuff! ^_^)

iTunes on the Notebook,
MythMusic in the living room and
Amarok on the workstation.

I used to have JuK for a while. Its a cool thing, but amaroK just rocks better!

I still use beep-media-player but I absolutely hate it. My .mp3's are all stored in the format...

Code:
Artist name\ -\ Album Title\ -\ Track number\ -\ Song title


...so that they're sorted in an easy-to-search order. I would *love* to find an .mp3 player that just listed the files in that order. I've tried beep, xmms, rhythmbox, and audacious and they all have some weird (and similar, across the four of them) way of formatting the file names so that the playlist looks messed up. Sometimes the track numbers don't show up, sometimes strange characters appear, sometimes songs get printed in all caps, and they get put in the playlist editor all out of order. It's annoying :evil: . Anybody know of a player that *doesn't* do this?

I use Amarok, it's the only music player (and I've tried them all, from mplay to banshee) the has all the features I want, like album art and full ipod support.

Which is great, except that I'm much to lazy to type all that in for mpg123 to play. I meant something with a GUI. :P

Or you can create your own GUI for mpg123, that's if you're in to scripting/programing or if you have a friend who is :wink:

GMusicBrowser, it's not very well known, I think people don't like the default 2-windows setup, or maybe are confused by the way the playlist works, and give up. But it's a really good player, especially for huge libraries.

It's got cover art, lyrics, wikipedia, you can set 'flags' to songs (like in delicious/flickr), multi-criteria sort options, very powerful system to select a song/album/artist by clicking on the playing song/album/artist, 'locks' for a one-click way to listen only to current artist/album or go back to whole library, a very customizable window layout ...

It's currently missing : support for ipods, streams, sharing

I never could stand amarok :)
